engine noise 4.2 s8

2 posts in this topic

Hello, just been to view an s8 for a friend 52 plate with 140k on clock in nice condition inside and out but on starting there was a lot of tappet noise infact the tappet noise did not go way but was constant the whole time we viewed the car . The seller claims it only started a couple of days ago and did not notice it prior to an oil change again only few days ago (he has had car 2 months on his forecourt ) . any ideas ? Thanks

I have had four 8`s in the past and its always turned out to be noisy injectors for me ,not saying that is the problem but they can sound quite rattly , try listining to them with a long thin screwdriver ;) . i dont seem to remember to many threads on here with cases of tappet problems
